Date:12/5/2009

NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- There have been significant scientific advances in the field of blood cancers, and leading experts continue to gain a better understanding of how certain diseases progress in order to discover new treatment options and provide patients with the best care. Research presented today at the 51st Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology explores optimal induction therapies for managing multiple myeloma, the importance of advance care planning for improved quality of life, and a potential new first-line therapy for patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
